No-looker

noun; compounding
a punch, kick, or other physical blow dealt without observing the target, typically behind the aggressor
 
The term “no-looker” is used exclusively in the action or superhero genre of literature and film. The term arose out of need to comically describe a situation in which a character strikes another without facing him. It may have been influenced by the commonly used adjective “no-look” as in a “no-look shot” in which a player shoots the ball without looking at his target.
Etymology : From no [“not”] + look + -er
